Aloha! My name is Wendy and I am thrilled to be a part of the ‘ohana at Hawaiian Experience Spa! I went through the massage therapy program at Cortiva Institute of Scottsdale, Arizona. I came to massage therapy while searching for a teaching position. The massage school in Scottsdale continually presented itself so I contacted the school. I had previously been helped tremendously with massage therapy after an injury a few years ago and remembered the results. Since I have always enjoyed education and the medical profession, I decided that this was the career for me! I have enjoyed the therapeutic results and the art of massage ever since, and I really enjoy the ongoing education that accompanies this career. Some of my favorite modalities include myofascial release, Swedish Massage, trigger point therapy and sports massage. I look forward to expanding my learning and experiences here at Hawaiian Experience Spa.
I am a native of Minnesota and relocated in 2013 to care for my parents. Although my mother has passed, I still assist my dad and really enjoy spending time with him when I can. I have a 4-year degree in Elementary Education and hold a certification as a Certified Nursing Assistant. I am a Veteran of the armed forces and really enjoyed my time in the service. I have enjoyed teaching and caring for Alzheimer patients for most of my life, and Massage Therapy has been an extension of that service and care of others. I have nine children, seven grandchildren and my husband who is my very best friend. I love to hike, go for walks, go on scenic drives, go to the lake, fishing and boating, work out using weights, try new foods, and really enjoy learning new things such as languages. I love animals and nature, painting, drawing and creating.
I am so excited to be your Licensed Massage Therapist and look forward to my new position at Hawaiian Experience Spa in Chandler and getting to know all of you!
